Resident Life at the University of Rochester

Residency in internal medicine is not easy. But, if you have bright, energetic, and caring co-residents and a supportive program, then you will look back very fondly on your residency experience, as have so many U of R IM residency graduates.

Assuring that each resident has a high quality of life is an extremely high priority for our program. We believe that managing stress and maintaining a healthy life outside of residency improves residents' ability to learn and to care for patients most effectively.

The internal medicine residency at the University of Rochester is known for its supportiveness. Residents come together to help each other in and out of work in a culture rooted in support and collegiality rather than competitiveness. Ours is a culture of inclusion where resident wellness and work-life balance are prioritized. And we know that residents value food, so we provide lots of it.
